Due to some issues we've had the last month or so, we are considering changing our chat app. LINE is easy to use and we've all grown used to it but LINE just doesn't offer the moderation tools we are looking for. For those that have been with us since the beginning, you'll remember our first app was BAND. We had the ability to easily moderate chat, delete inappropriate posts or pictures not to mention that BAND chat supports up to 1000 people in a single chat compared to LINE's 200 member limit. BAND also has the ability to schedule events and create announcements and polls right in the app. Lots of features. 

However, one of the most important features needed is lacking from both apps. The ability to delete inappropriate content from chats. In BAND, the admin has the ability to remove content from the groups main feed but not the chat. Once the content is passed through the servers to your device, it cannot be deleted. For this reason, the only moderation features that differ between the two is that in BAND, invites and approvals are monitored and removals require an admin whereas in LINE anyone can invite or remove. This could be a problem if someone were to take advantage of it. Take these differences into consideration.

Our BAND group is now open to the public. Feel free to download BAND on your mobile device and search for Milites Ex Mortis. I have created a poll. Please feel free to try BAND for a bit and vote for the app of your choice. Give them both a fair evaluation and let us know what you think.

We don't take this decision lightheartedly as we realize it would be an inconvenience to switch and value your opinions and input.

EDIT 08/02/15:

After dismal participation in our previous poll, we have decided to extend the poll for another week. Both LINE and BAND chats will remain open during this time. We desperately need to purge our Destiny groups, so those that are active, make an appearance on BAND to give it a try. Those that do not will be considered among the first to go. A definite decision will be made on August 8th/9th. Poll has been reset. Thank you.

I was here when the Band app was active and from a members point of view, I didn't like it as much. My phone had trouble loading the latest messages and it jumped around all the time.

Personally I like the Line app more. The stickers are awesome buy they can be annoyingly spammed but overall pretty cool.

The Band app could hold 1000 members but say for Destiny... That's like having 10 MxM clans. It's cool but not so much needed. In the end, Band is better on moderation but Line app is more fun.

I just joined and began my MXM clan membership on LINE but after a few..... Occasions that occurred id rather see Rock moderate more than he is allowed now plus the expanded members would b good as well. So BAND is my vote

I liked Band better overall. I liked Line because of the stickers but that flew out the window. Making me rebuy the stickers when it was a screw up on their part.

Here's my take. I like all the features of BAND. What I don't like about it is the slight delay in posts and notifications are slow. LINE is easier to use but that's because of its lack of features compared to BAND. LINE is faster and smoother with cool stickers but that's about it. I feel we really need more control over chat and the extra features in BAND are just a bonus.

After downloading it, I personally like it as a user. Cleaner, and more friendlier to users. Line isn't difficult, but I do enjoy my apps having a smooth look to it. I don't see much in the difference other than stickers lol
